Decision is one of indescribable lunacy

The decision to reduce the 24-hour service to office hours within the cardiac unit at our local hospital is one of indescribable lunacy.

No doubt the faceless ‘cost savers’ who came up with this idea are invariably younger and fitter than many of those with a heart condition and cannot relate to their concerns over this.

I suppose their answer will be that mobile paramedics carry the essential life saving equipment aboard their ambulances. Give us both options, please – paramedics and the excellent facilities of Eastbourne’s DGH, 24 hours.
